7:57 am
i got the pens all ready. now, as i said before, congress should pass this bill knowing that every proposal is fully paid for. the american jobs act will not add to our nation's debt. today i'm releasing a plan how to pay for the jobs bill while also paying down our debt overtime. this is important because the had -- because the health of our economy depends in part what we do, where businesses can hire and families can feel a basic measure of economic security. but in the long run, our prosperity depends on however ability to pay down the massive debt that we've accumulated over the last decade. during this past decade, tax cuts for million tie
7:58 am
millionaires and billionaireses. the cost of two wars and receipt session turned the record surplus into a yawning deficit and that left us with a big pile of oius. if we don't act, that burden will ultimately fall on our children's shoulders. if we don't act, the growing debt will eventually cloud out everything else, preventing us from investing in things like educationor sustaining medicare. so washington has to live within its means. the government has to do what families across this country have been doing for years. we have to cut what we can can afford to pay for what really matters. we need to invest in what will promote hiring, and economic growth now, while still providing the confidence that will come with reducing our def its -- that will reduce our deficits in the long-term.
7:59 am
this approach that i put forth in april was an approach to shrink the economy but not to do so so you a i -- abruptly that this would prevent us from helping small businesses and middle class families get back on their feet. it was an approach that said we need too go through the budget line by line looking for waste without shortchanging education, because those things are essential to our future. and it was an approach that said we shouldn't balance the budget on the backs of the poor and the middle class. for us to solve this problem, everybody, including the wealthiest americans and the biggest corporations have to pay their fair share. now, during the debt ceiling debate. i had hoped to negotiate a compremice with the speaker of the house that -- compromise with the speaker of the house that achieved these prince, a
8:00 am
grand bargain that would have strengthened our economy instead of weakened it. untfyly, the -- unfortunately, the speaker walked away from a balanced package. what we agreed to was not all that gran. it was a start roughly $1 trillion in cuts to domestic spending and defense spending. everyone knows we have to do more at a special -- special committee. see today i'm laying out a specific set of proposals to finish what we finished this summer. the proposals that i have talked about from the beginning. it's a plan that reduces our debt by more than $4 trillion, by asking everyone everybody to do their part. so that no one has to bear too much of the burden on their own. all told this plan cuts $2 in spending for every dollar in
8:01 am
new revenues. in addition to the $1 trillion in spending that we've already cut from the budget. we create agricultural subsidies. we make modest adjustments to federal retirement programs. we reduce -- we reduce by tens of billions of dollars the tax money that goes to fannie mae and freddie mac. we also ask the largest financial firms to repay the american people for every dime we spent and we save an additional $1 trillion as we end the wars in iraq and afghanistan. the savings are not only counted as part of our plan as part of the budget plan, that
8:02 am
nearly every republican -- republican in the house sloated for. finally, reduce -- voted for. finally, reducing programs like medicare and medicaid. we're gonna have to do more. this plan reduces wasteful subsidies and erroneous payments while changing some incentives that lead to healthcare costs. it makes prescriptions more affordable. we'll work with governors -- governors to make medicaid more efficient and more accountable. and instead of just paying for procedures, providers will be paid more when they improve results. such steps will save money and improve care. these changes are phased in slowly to strengthen medicare and medicaid overtime. while we do need to reduce
8:03 am
healthcare costs, i'm not going to allow that to be an excuse that leaves seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry. i'm not going to stand for it. so we will reform medicare and medicaid but we will not abandon the funt mental -- fundamental commitment. that includes our commitment to social security. i have said before social security is not the primary cause of the issue. the parties are gonna have to work on a separate track to strengthen social security for our children and grandchildren. we can reduce the budget, by reforming reforming government spending and by making modest adjustments to medicare and medicaid. but all of these reductions in spending by themselves will not solve our fiscal problems.
8:04 am
we can't just cut our way out of this whole -- hout of this -- out of this hole. it's gonna take a balanced approach. if we're gonna make spending cuts, mown of which we wouldn't make if we weren't facing such large deficits, then it's only right that we ask everyone to pay their fair share. last week speaker of the house john boehner, made a speech. he made the point that he can't afford the kind of politics that it's my way or the highway. i was encouraged by that. here's the problem -- in the same speech, he also came out against any plan to cut the deficit that includes any additional revenues whatsoever. he said, i'm wroting him, "there is only one option and that option and -- and only option relies entirely on cuts,
8:05 am
that means slashing education, surrendering and allowing our highways, bridges and airports to get worse. it would cripple our competitiveness and our ability to win jobs in the future. it would also mean asking sacrifice of seniors and the middle class and the poor while asking nothing of the wealthiest americans and biggest corporationing. so the speaker says my way or the highway and then basically says my way or the highway. [ laughter ] >> that's not smart. it's not right. if we're gonna meet our responsibilities we have to do it together. now i'm proposing real serious cuts in spending. when you include the $1 trillion in cuts i've already
8:06 am
signed into law, these would be among the biggest cuts in spending in our history but they have to be part of a larger plan that's bal paned. a plan that asks the most fortunate among us to pay their fair share just like everybody else. and that's why in plan eliminates tax loopholes that primarily go to the wealthiest taxpayers and biggest corporations, tax breaks that small businesses and middle class families don't fore-- don't get. and if tax reform doesn't get done, this plan asked the -- asks the wellniest americans to go back to paying the same rates they paid before the bush tax cuts. i promise it's not because anybody looks forward to the moss specials of raising -- looks forward to the prospect of raising taxes or paying more taxes. i don't. in fact, i cut taxes and through the jobs act we did
8:07 am
that, too. we can't afford these special rates for the wealthy. [ please stand by for a change in captioners ] [ if you stack up all the volumes, they are almost 5-feet tall. that means how much you pay is often what you make and how well to gain the system and that is especially true where
8:08 am
you have one of the highest rates in the world and it is riddled with exceptions and special interest loopholes. so you know some companies, they get out paying a lot of taxes while the rest of them, they end up having to put the bill, which makes our entire economy less competitive and less of a desirable place to do business. that has to change. and to invest in the united states of america and to create jobs in the united states of america and we can lower the corporate rates if you get rid of all these special deals. >> and so i am ready, i'm eager to work with the democrats and the republicans, and to reform the tax codes to make it simpler and to make it fair. and you know to make america more competitive. but any reform plans, they will have to raise revenues to help
8:09 am
close our deficits. and that has to be a part of the formula. any reform should follow another simple principle. middle class families, they shouldn't pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. that's pretty straightforward. it's hard to argue against that. warren buffet's secretary shouldn't pay a higher tax rate than warren buffet. there's no justification for it. it is wrong that in the united states of america, a teacher or a nurse, or a construction worker who earned $50,000 should pay higher tax rates. >> you've been listening live to president obama speaking live at the rose garden at the white house just talking right now about the buffet rule for millionaires. of course, named after investor, warren buffet, who argued the very rich, they are not taxed enough. now, the president is announcing his plan to cut the national deficit by $3 trillion. the steps that he says have been supported by democrats and
8:10 am
republicans in the past. and the main part is that it includes $1.5 trillion in new taxes about half of that return from letting some of the bush era tax cuts expire for high- income house holds. the president repeated that it is important that every one paid their fair share in this effort. and there is also just over $1 trillion in savings through the withdrawal of troops from iraq and afghanistan and the other key part comes from $580 billion of mandatory spending cuts to entitlement programs, like medicare and medicaid, but it would not include and change the eligibility age for medicare and it does not touch social security. but political analysts say the new taxes though, they have little chance of passing through congress because republicans, they refuse to support tax increases, saying it's basically class warfare and hurts business owners who create jobs. we do have a reporter that's monitoring the be the and also reactions to washington, d.c. so we will have a recap of the president's speech coming up at
8:11 am
about 8:15. all right, now our time is 8:11, along with tori campbell, i'm dave clark. and is it a man or a woman? ktvu aly rassmusen is out there. >> the next step of their investigation is to determine whether or not the body found in the weekend is connected to the missing nursing student who has been missing since may 27. also this morning, there might be some legal developments in this case as well. about an hour from now, the woman arrested for her murder is due to appear in court here at the hayward hall of justice. at her hearing, she could be assigned a public defender and she may enter a plea. investigators say that the 27- year-old was a former high school friend of lei's, blaming her for ruining her relationship with an ex- boyfriend. and she was last seen on may 27

8:35 am
on mornings on 2. and that plaque calls for a new tax rate on the nation's millionaires. carter evans is live at the nasdaq site. how are reactors reacting to the plan? >> not at all. i don't think that there was any real surprise here for investors. you know, it's pretty much the same thing you have heard before. democrats, you know, mainly the white house, they want tax increases to help out with the problem we're in. republicans, they want spending cuts only. and they are still at odds. that's what we got from the president today. and the numbers, they have held stable. let me show you quickly. the dow is down about 208 points today. this is on debt concerns over in europe, not because of the speech. but it's been pretty much steadily down a couple hundred points all day long. nasdaq is getting a little better. the s and s500 is also significantly lower today -- the s&p 500 is also significantly lower today. this came from investor warren
8:36 am
buffet, the billionaire because he said that in terms of percentage that he actually pays the lower tax rate than his secretary does. the reason for that is they make their money off of stock options, things like that. now, you know, he has talk about raising the capitol gains tax rate before, a lot of people say that will discourage business and investments. now they are talking about raising money on the wealthiest investors, and how much, you know, that will remain to be seen. and they are leading it up to congress to work out exactly how much. you know what, i can tell you though just from watching this go on back and forth, the last couple of weeks, the republicans, they are not having any of this right now. and republican, many of them are in office right now and they signed to pledge that they will not be raising taxes in any way, shape, or form while they are in office right now.
8:37 am
i think wall street will see it today as more of the same. >> yeah. >> but i know that there has been a growing concern about the deficit. and is there some hope, at least that the debt will be reduced no matter, you know, how it will take place? >> reporter: well, we know that the debt will be reduced or the deficit will be reduced one way or another with the 12-member supercommittee. supposedly they are working on this right now. they need to come up with a deal by thanksgiving. then they need to pitch it to congress and congress has to pass it before the end of the year. and you hear me, you know, almost laughing a little bit because you can take a look at what it took to get the debt ceiling debate passed back in july. and this is a much bigger deal for you. and so now these congressmen and women, they have a lot of work ahead of them on the special committee. again, no one wants to raise taxes. democrats say we've got to raise taxes. so it will be very interesting to see where the money will come from. it will be a lot of cuts.
8:38 am
$1.2 trillion. the president's plan by the way is to cut $3 trillion over 10 years, but much of that, again, by raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. >> yeah, and you can see how it will all be played out. thank you. and it is 8:38, well, netflix is responding to their plunging stock price and loss of customers after their 60% rate hike. the company is now splitting into two. the company announced last night that they are splitting up in streaming services. the streaming services, they will keep the netflix name. the dvd division will be called quickster and each will have their own ceo. >> streaming has incredible tv shows, instant, streaming is fairly global. they have many things that will be making it different from dvd. and then overtime both dvds and streaming will be much better because they are separate. >> netflix ceo, also formally apologized for the recent 60% rate hike saying he did not expect them to communicate the
8:39 am
